Dave,

The ship sets the appropriate wear for the evening.

That's exactly right.

If is is formal with a casual dining option, BOTH would be allowed in public areas and to attend events like the shows unless otherwise specified.

As sensible as that might seem, it is in fact wrong. On Celebrity, the stated policy is that the prescribed evening attire is required everywhere except the "Casual Dining Boulevard." In other words, the line's stated policy is that formal or informal attire is required in the showroom, in all lounges, and in the casino on he respective evenings. Envorcement may vary, but it is a social faux pas to show up for the show in casual attire on a formal evening in any case. Princess maintained a similar policy though my last cruise with them, which was just prior to the merger of operations between the parent company and Carnival Corporation. I can't speak for other lines.

JEANS AND A SWEATSHIRT are not considered CASUAL DRESS by Celebrity. THAT WAS MY POINT. Not that only those wear tuxedos and gowns could attend events.

JEANS aren't even considered resortwear, neither are sweatshirts.

SO when a poster PURPOSELY states they are going to break adhearance to the dress codes...I get pissed. Sorry if you disagree.


I agree copletely. This would be an eggregious breach of social etiquette that shows utter contempt for the other passengers as well as the line.

If Jean. who claims to be a seasoned cruiser...

But look at Jean's cruise history. All of her cruises have been on "budget" and "mainstream" lines that do not have -- and do not expect -- the class of Celebrity Cruises and its passengers. There is a difference. Anybody who chooses a Celebrity cruise thinking that the line's character and ambiance are just like the lines in her list is in for a rude awakening.

I'd like to see them in New York. Dinner at Sardis, then "Spam-a-lot".

Hmmm dinner rush back to the hotel change into sweats and do a sold out broadway show....How about a wedding? Wear something nice to church....change into jeans and sweat pants for the reception ....F*CK everybody else I wanna be comfortable...


I love your parody. It captures the attitude perfectly.

Its NOT about what you are wearing its about RESPECTING TRADITION as well as consideration for the other passengers and thier experience.
Anything else is RUDE, SELFISH, and INCONSIDERATE....PERIOD.


Very well said. In fact, this bears repeating!

And I would add ARROGANT to the list.

Norm.
